Meeting Housing Needs in Rural America.
Tremblay, Kenneth R., Jr.
This paper first considers the importance of housing as a component of rural quality of life. Rural-urban housing differences are then evaluated, with both advantages and disadvantages cited for rural areas relative to urban areas. A strategy to improve rural housing by increasing the number of housing choices is presented, with human service providers playing a vital role. By helping to determine housing needs and choices, providing information about proper housing choices to rural residents, and working in collaboration with relevant community leaders, human service providers can help rural residents to better meet their housing needs.
